Website redevelopment

Thu, 11/04/2019 - 3:14pm

If you’re not already aware, we have been redeveloping our websites to improve our online information. The new website will go live on 10 June 2019 to line up with International Archives Day.

Our website – which will still be at archives.govt.nz – will focus on:

  • making it easy for everyone to access information 
  • merging our 6 sites down into a one stop shop
  • improve our website structure so you can easily find what you need.

The merge will be spread out over the coming months and we’ll keep you informed on these changes as they happen.

We think you’ll our new website. It’s built so that you can use it on any device from smartphone to desktop.

We are working towards meeting the NZ Web Standards for accessibility and usability.

This is an on-going improvement activity for us, and your feedback is welcome. If you have any questions, please send us an email to webmaster-archives@dia.govt.nz and we’ll get back to you.
